Dubuque Couple Pleads Guilty To Wire Fraud

A Dubuque man and his wife accused of stealing nearly $200,000 from his disabled mother have pleaded guilty to federal charges. 65 year old Howard Derby and his 51 year old wife Pattie recently entered guilty pleas to wire fraud. State charges were dropped after the federal charges were filed. Documents say Derby’s disabled mother moved in with the couple and that he had been given power of attorney for her finances and medical needs. The Derbys then took money from her accounts to buy cars and pay for vacations among other things. Federal records don’t list a sentencing date.
